Health information services in India is quite pathetic. We currently run one HELP service (Health Education Library for People) in downtown Mumbai, successfully.The idea is to create at least four such centers in Mumbai this year.Patient education has been shown to improve doctor-patient relationship by providing Information Therapy!
World's largest free patient education resource center
Please do come and visit HELP !
Our focus areas now are:
1. encouraging health insurance companies to invest in patient education
2. advocating information therapy
3. setting up a national network of patient education centers
4. developing patient educational materials in Indian languages for the web
